Abstract

The exact location of Berua – a town recorded by Pliny the Elder among the Raetica oppida in the Regio X – and the tribe in which its inhabitants – the Beruenses – were enrolled are still unknown. In section 1, the paper provides an overview of the available sources concerning Berua and the Beruenses. In section 2, all previous hypotheses of identifying the town and its inhabitants’ tribe are discussed. In section 3, a new interpretation, which suggests to identify the tribe of the Beruenses with the Scaptia tribus and Berua with the modern Italian town of Montebelluna (Treviso), is proposed.
